Programme outline

  • Week one

    Know Yourself, Be Yourself, Look After Yourself

    Week one is focused on reviewing the personal qualities that social leaders have and how they’re demonstrated. Through personal reflection and introspection, you will get a clear understanding of your own leadership strengths and areas for improvement.
  • Week two

    Understanding context and purpose

    Week two focuses on gaining insight into ‘why’ you do what you do, what motivates you, and how this is influenced by your context - everything around you, from politics, society and communities to universities and workplaces.
  • Week three

    Becoming a great team player

    None of us exist or succeed in isolation. Week three will help you understand how to be a great team player and how to communicate and collaborate with your peers effectively.
  • Week four & five

    Looking towards the future

    Week four and five consolidate the learning from the last three weeks and help you chart the next steps in your leadership development, by creating a clear actionable plan for continuing your learning and development.
